That is, essentially, correct.

Allow me to expand. There are three groups of people whose
interests overlap only partially:

[A] GPG developers

[B] GPG users that "have nothing to hide"

[C] GPG users with secrets that must be protected from active
     and capable adversaries

This mailing list (and specifically, the project that is the subject
of this thread), appears to be dedicated to increasing the size of
[B] for the benefit of [A]. I wish both [A] and [B] well, but I am
concerned here with [C], who would indeed be much better off by not
using GPG at all, than by using it with insufficient understanding,
competence and prudence.
